Thanks for bringing my attention to the real point of ducats' question, ring.

For sure I wouldn't listen to the GD every day if all these recordings weren't available. I also don't think that I would have such an emotional attachment to the great songs they wrote and covered over the years either. The experiences I have had meeting, talking, and jamming tunes with older heads at shows and on Shakedown Street have been catalyzed by all these tapes.

The last 2 nights I've been hanging out with my friend and his dad, who saw about a hundred shows with the first one being Fillmore East '70 when he was 14... he was at Boston Garden, RFK '73 as well! It was really something to meet someone for the first time and be able to play tunes we both knew until the early hours of the morn'.
